Look like a fun birthday party!! I love you Elf thing that you do for the kids for xmas. I might have to snag that idea up and do it once CJ gets a little bit older. You are a very talented woman!!

My 2 year old would love this party. I am "digginig" the dirt cake and the under construction site. Great job!

Kendra said...

So you have to tell me? Did you see the truck party I threw for my son on my site, or do we just share a brain? I did the road tablecloth, too. I thought it was genius when I read about it, but had never seen anyone else do that before (the truck cake has been around the block for a while).

Anyhow, you did a great job pulling it all together. I love that you had the real construction "candles" leading to the party! What fun!

Thanks for joining my party!

Hi, nice to "meet" you. I am linked up with the party party too!

Your truck party looks super fun. I love the table cloth idea! The dirt cake is super cool!

Thanks for the inspiration...I'm on the hunt for construction birthday party ideas for my son's upcoming 2- year old birthday party and found your blog in my search! Fun ideas!!

Jana said...

Loved ALL your ideas for the "construction party" I to want something low key and inexpensive.
Great Job!

Hi! Your little guy is almost exactly my youngests age (Logan will be three in two weeks) and this year we are doing a construction theme party for him. We have obviously found tons of the same ideas, but WOW! Your party turned out GREAT! I love the dump truck invitation... amazingly creative, mama. I was thinking of making a Caution sign as Logan's, but now I am kinda rethinking it cuz yours is just so brilliant. Anyhow. Hope your little one has had a great year. I am off to see what you did this last birthday!

Blessings,

Val

Hi! Looks like your little guy is exactly one year older than mine! I was wondering if you made the dirt cake in the dump truck or transferred it over. We are having a construction truck party, and this is one of the few cute cake ideas I can do (I don't trust myself to do any sort of cutting out and crazy frosting type cakes).

Alayna said...

Cathy - You just bake the cake in whatever pan you have handy then crumble it into the back of the dump truck.
Happy Birthday to your little one! My guy is now the big FOUR today

Alison said...

Great ideas and pictures! I am excited to try some of them out at my little guy's 2nd birthday party in May.

Alison said...

Me again...thanks for all the great ideas! I just hosted my little guy's second party and your post gave me so much inspiration (especially the cake, tablecloth, and road signs). Here's how it turned out: http://mudandsunshine.blogspot.com/2011/06/caution-fun-zone.html Thanks again for sharing!

This is so stinking cute! I just linked to your blog from my Best of the Web construction party! Thanks for sharing your great ideas!

Maryka said...

Hey! You really went all out. My son's birthday is on 27 November 2011 and instead of taking a plastic dumptruck for the cake, I am baking him a real dumptruck that looks exactly like his favourite one!!!

musicmom said...

I really like your road rug. Where did you get it?

Alayna's Creations said...

I bought the car rug at Walmart a couple years ago (under $20). I've also seen good ones at Ikea (again, under $20) and ToysRUs. Tyler still uses his a lot - I'm sure you're little one would love it

Unknown said...
